No disappointments in gameplay here, but unfortunately the episode is VERY short- allow about 2–3 hours only, or if you take it slowly perhaps you may squeeze 4–5 hours- just enough for a rainy afternoon! If these episodes are going to be this short, @ fifty bucks a pop this is very expensive entertainment. I personally am not inclined to buy more episodes at this rate. Perhaps VALVE could release an extension via Steam to make up for it. The rating I'm giving it though reflects gameplay, not brevity.
